Kelly Nets Pair of American Music Awards Nominations

by at . Comments

Congratulations to our own Kelly Clarkson on securing a pair of nominations for the upcoming American Music Awards. The inaugural American Idol winner will be up for both Pop/Rock Favorite Female Artist and Adult Contemporary Favorite Artist!

Kelly Clarkson is Our IdolFor the second straight year, Mariah Carey is up for the Favorite Female Artist honor in both the Pop/Rock and Soul/Rhythm & Blues categories, as well as for Favorite Album in the latter category.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, who also led the nominations for last month's MTV VMAs, are competing for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Music category, and Favorite Band, Duo or Group and Favorite Album for their new release Stadium Arcadium in the Pop/Rock field. Their primary challenger in all three categories seems to be Nickelback.

The Black Eyed Peas, meanwhile, are nominated for favorite rap/hip-hop group, while their album Monkey Business earned nominations in the rap/hip-hop and soul/R&B categories.

Besides Clarkson, eight other artists received two nominations each: Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kanye West, Jamie Foxx, T.I., Rascal Flatts, Pussycat Dolls and our own Carrie Underwood!

Congrats to all. In other Kelly news, AIW has learned that her song "Where Is Your Heart" is going to be featured on tonight's episode of Laguna Beach: The Real O.C., tonight at 10 p.m. on MTV. Don't miss it!
